On Monday 12th September IES Jönköping restarts it's work raising money for Mafakela Primary School in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Parents are invited to join in a fun and interesting culture evening starting at 18:00 at the school. The Principal Mr Varley and guest speaker Nono Berglund, a former student of Mafakela Primary School, present the school, the project and interesting stories behind some of the students and families there.
In brief, the project has two main goals - to repair and replace the school's very old and unsanitary toilets and to raise funds to pay the small fees required to put poor children into education. If you are interested in learning more, please come to the Zimbabwe culture evening on Monday or email the Principal.
